does anyone know where the official Powerball drawings take place?

Out of all the 44 United States jurisdictions where Powerball is played, the winning ticket is bought at a store about 15 minutes from where the drawings are held, very interesting.

And this winner, FLA's first Powerball winner was purchased like 5 minutes from where its drawn.  http://www.wesh.com/news/21304464/detail.html

    "Oh boo hoo, it wasn't me" sure comes in a lot of disguises.

    Congrats to the winner.

    you have no idea what you're talking about, so stfu. I don't even live in a state that has Powerball so why would I be crying over a lotto, I can't even play. Before anyone writes anything, I don't actually live in pocatello.

            I have to say, I was in Florida for the Shuttle launch and bought a ticket for the Powerball. As we were driving home, I read that the winning ticket was from Florida! So for .00005 seconds, I felt maybe I had won!

            Good luck to the real winner (wait a minute...they already have the luck!) and I hope you go anonymous!

              I've got a real good idea you're a whining little "witch" and if antyone said anything about a winner coming from wherever the heck it is that you live you'd be even more so.

              You've made several posts about "the winner better not be near where the drawing is held". If you get jade-green jealous over someone else winning a game you can't even play you really need help.

              As for the rest of your post I authenticate Gulf Foxtrot as Yankee in reply to your stfu.

              Bye.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      The winning lottery ticket for Saturday's $182.1 million Powerball jackpot was sold in a Publix store in Kissimmee, Florida, located on a road with a very fitting name.

                      It's at 2340 Fortune Road and someone who bought a Powerball ticket for Saturday night's drawing at that store has won a fortune.

                      The Quick Pick ticket won the $182.1 million jackpot. If the winner wants to take a one-time cash payment, it is $91.2 million.

                       

                      It looks like I need to find me a "lucky" store on an appropriately named street to buy my quick pick for the Mega Millions!  Congrats to the winner...I was hoping it would have been me, but since that is not the case, I hope the winner is a young American (but chances of that are slim since there are so many elderly and immigrant people in Florida...and before someone knocks me for being ageist and racist, my father is knocking on 80 and hails from Jamaica and my mother-in-law is 60 something and hails from Haiti).

                      "Got me a ticket for Mega Millions Tuesday...gonna hope that my 6 numbers will hit..............oh store clerk pick me a quick pick winner!" (Adaptation from Weird Al Yankovich's "Vanna Pick Me a Letter" hit song) 

                      Just so happens that this Fortune Road Publix is in my neighborhood.  I play my numbers there all the time.  Word I'm hearing is that the winner is a 70yr. old women.  Apperantly, she brought the ticket to the store on Sunday, to validate, and several people witnessed her delight.  What a blessing!  Just what I'm hearing.  Hoping that "Lady Luck" stays in Kissimmee for a whileHurray!
